RE: Of guns & museum pieces

After reading David Hanger's letter dated April 30, Of guns and museum pieces, I simply have to respond!  First of all, Mr. Hanger does taxes for people - that tells me he's book-smart.  And that's not a bad thing... But it doesn't mean that he's generally smart.  Obviously, he's far from "people-smart."  His very insinuations make that quite plain!  

Mr. Hanger has a lot of nerve, telling "John Q. Public" (people in general) that NOBODY has as much knowledge about firearms as he does!  I, myself, spoke to numerous people about Mr. Hanger's letter and the general opinion is that Mr. Hanger is an idiot!  I'm inclined to agree.  

Mr. Hanger spent a lot of time on that letter, I'm sure.  Myself:  I don't have that kind of time on my hands.  I have better things to do with my time than belittle numerous people whom I know NOTHING about.  I could go on and on with this letter, but I have to get to the shooting range!  

Also, I probably will never visit this site [SitNews] again; computers are great for what they're designed for, but I'd much rather spend my time shooting my rifles and pistols so that I'll be ready-when hunting season opens to fill my family's freezer.  

Keep shooting dimes, Mr. Hanger... I'm sure you're the only man on the planet who can do such a thing... And I wouldn't be surprised if you did it blind-folded!
